Reigning Men’s Super League champions Garvey’s Tralee Warriors have secured the services of former Killorglin star player Daniel Jokubaitis for the 2019/2020 season.The 25 year old Lithuanian signed for the Warriors this week and will provide additional depth to their roster as they prepare to defend their Super League crown. He enjoyed a stellar year with Keane’s SuperValu Killorglin in the 2017/2018 season being named Men’s National League Division One Player of the Year two seasons ago and helping the Kerry side secure their place in Men’s Super League for the first time. Prior to that he had played in Germany for BBG Herford as a 20 year old in 2013 before joining Killorglin after a four-year break from the game. Coach Pat Price says he is delighted with his new signing, “Daniel is a really good fit for our roster and we will be able to provide the challenges for him to develop further as a player. He will provide us with extra depth around the perimeter and will slot in very easily to our squad for the coming season.”
He says the Warriors new recruit is a formidable competitor on the court, “Daniel is a big guard and a physical guard with a toughness and tenacity that is respected around the League. He is held in high regard for the manner in which he plays with a toughness and a skillset that very few other players have.” Club Chairman Terry O’Brien says the new signing is sure to become a favourite with the Warriors faithful, “Daniel is a player of real quality who was outstanding for Killorglin over the past two seasons. He is a great addition to our squad and we look forward to seeing him in action for the Warriors as we look to build on the success we enjoyed last season.”
